This one isn’t quite Valentines themed, but I figured floral lace is good enough! This mani is actually a disappointment…not because of the design, but because of the base color. Zoya recently had a promotion where they gave away three free mini colors in addition to whatever you bought, and this is one of them. And it is UGLY.
The mini trio consisted of a deep “dirt” brown/black, a pale gold metallic, and the color shown here, a nude creme. I was most excited for this one, because I am always in the market for new nudes. I was NOT in the market for a greenish-yellow nude that made my nails looked diseased. Seriously, I have seen people with chronic illnesses in the hospitals with nails that looked healthier than this color. I bet it would look good on people with darker skin tones, but it looks awful on me! Anyway, the polish is named Charlotte, and covered nicely in two coats. If only it weren’t a terrible color.
I decided to try and separate the color away from my skin tone, so I stamped with black and added some red highlights. It actually worked…my nails no longer look sickly! I am particularly happy with the tiny red french tips.
